Followed each step of this procedure:
https://archive.org/about/faqs.php#1162

Answer:
"There Is No Preview Available For This Item. This item does not appear to have any files that can be experienced on Archive.org."

And:
"This item is currently being modified/updated with a 'derive' task."

Now, what is a "derive task queue"?

I usually receive the, "There Is No Preview Available For This Item...." message when the uploaded file(s) have not been completely received into the archive.org system.

I believe by derive they mean the process of taking the originally uploaded file(s) and converting them into a variety of other formats. I.E. If I were to upload a PDF, it may derive (convert) into:

epub,
_abbyy.gz
_djvu.xml
_jp2.zip
_scandata.xml
_text.pdf


You might be able to view the tasks by viewing the Item's 'history' page. I do this by replacing 'details' with 'history' in the URL. I.E.

https://archive.org/history/FullMetalAlchemistVol.01Spanish

for this Item:

https://archive.org/details/FullMetalAlchemistVol.01Spanish


Note: I noticed even after the task(s) have successfully finished, it takes a while for everything to appear in the Playlist. I generally wait 12-24 hours.

I do not know how to determine what appears in the playlist. I have uploaded- PDF's and MPEG2's and the PDF's do not appear in the Playlist. Recently, I uploaded files into a test Item- a PDF, an MPEG2 and 2 audio and they all appeared in the Playlist. However, the PDF was a low resolution and pretty much illegible. Perhaps it was the GIF. When I replaced the MPEG2, it never reappeared in the Playlist.

It helps to provide the Item / Identifier URL / link.

I point out, they're just four pages.

It looks like it has 2 extensions.
.zip.zip
It might not have known how to deal with the double extension.

I would try to delete it and upload again with one extension.
As long as it is not a compressed (.zip) file of a conpressed (.zip) file.

I was sucessful upliading a PDF.
If you can compile your jpeg images into a PDF, you could try uploading the PDF 1st.

For now I cannott compile into PDF format -- without a payment.

I followed former procedure, about (if I am not mistaken) an images zipping, zip-folder. Well, I'll try with singular images.

By the way: may someone cancel my abortions? I really cannot cancel such that ghosts -- so to say, Archive-folder without images of any sort.
